Navy Yard Survivor Jennifer Bennett

 “I’m a warrior and a survivor.”

On September 16, 2013, Navy Yard Building 197 was under attack by one of their own. The headquarters for Naval Sea Systems Command, referred to in Navy-speak as “Nav-Sea,” became a battle zone. Gunman Aaron Alexis roamed the building, the corridors and the stairwell looking for anyone to shoot – and kill.

Self described “warrior and survivor,” Jennifer would have none of it. “God gave me a hymn that morning. He had never done that before.” Jennifer would be humming, “All is well with my soul…” when she reached the stairwell landing “between decks” and encountered Alexis scantly eight paces in front of her…

Jennifer is telling her story. And watch out, she is not holding anything back. “God left me here for a purpose. My job is to fulfill that.” And part of that fulfillment is in the form of a book (coming out in the beginning of 2018) and speaking with groups.

Would you like Jennifer to speak with your business or church group? You will be impressed with her candor, her strength and her faith. Your audience will be inspired by her, will take head-on any task at hand, and will learn not to fall into the trap of being a victim.
